The Pediatric 2000 is a fairly basic crib mattress but it gets very good consumer ratings and is also reasonable priced. If you are looking for a decent mattress that won’t empty your wallet this one is worth considering. It is not that widely available anymore but it can still be found with a bit of searching. Parents like the fact that the mattress is firm yet still comfortable, and that it is sturdy and lightweight. Some folks like the plastic film on the mattress that makes it waterproof and easy to wipe clean but others feel that it reduces the ability of the mattress to breath. [REF Crib Mattress Reviews]
